Question:   Important Info on Working in Foreign Ports
Answer:   Working in foreign ports takes a lot of planning and consideration on the part of both the scientist and the operators. In an effort to help outline the issues, responsibilities and key topics to consider when planning these complicated cruises, the UNOLS Logistics Working Group put together the UNOLS White Paper on Proposing, Planning, and Executing Logistics involved in Oceanographic Field Operations in Foreign Waters and Ports along with its Appendix 1-Detailed Recommendations and Considerations for Working in Foreign Ports and Obtaining Marine Science Research Clearances. These are must-reads for anyone planning to work in foreign ports.
